sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: secretary of state hillary clinton vowed today that u.s. diplomats will not retreat from dangerous parts of the world. she spoke amid the ongoing questions about the attack in libya that killed four americans. after meeting with the italian foreign minister, clinton defended the administration's changing statements about the attack. >> to this day, to this day we do not have a complete picture. we do not have all the answers. no one in this administration has ever claimed otherwise. every one of us has made clear that we are providing the best information we have at that time. >> sreenivasan: clinton also defended u.n. ambassador san rice, who initially said the attack started with a protest against an anti-islamic video. u.s. authorities now believe computer hackers based in iran carried out cyber-attacks on persian gulf oil and gas companies over the summer. the attacks crippled 30,000 computers at major companies in saudi arabia and qatar. and defense secretary leon panetta warned thursday of a possible "cyber pearl harbor". he promised "decisive

'm struck by the fact that the two most important performances of this campaign-- bill clinton's and mitt romney's in that debate-- were the two wonkiests. somehow i think in a moment of great cynicism people like to be talked to in a serious powerpoint sort of way in which a lot of us in the media think oh, it's over their heads, they'll be bored. >> pelley: but don't be folksy? >> i wouldn't go too far away from the statistics and data which is ryan's home turf. >> the difference is bill clinton used the word arithmetic i've never heard paul ryan use the word arithmetic. arithmetic is a word understood by people who only went to the sixth grade or people with ph.d.s. it's one thing to be wonky and not to do it in obscure language that's off putting. i do think as well that the question of the vice president is always, judy, he's mr. august when he's chosen. joe lieberman was a popular choice in 2000 but the real test is mr. october, what he does in this debate. paul ryan was a popular choice among many conservatives but this is his moment of truth. and there's going to be a lot of nervo
